Wireless Access Manager is a simple plug and play software for controlling wireless networks. It automatically configure a certain wireless device as a part of the workspace. A centralized control console enables a user to manage a wireless setting on multiple computers.
WAM is a free software provided by Microsoft for managing wireless networks.
It helps you manage both single and multiple wireless connections. To manage wireless networks with WAM, first you need to open a Windows Explorer window. On the right side of the screen there is a Wireless icon with an option for selecting an SSID and a logo. Now, click on it and follow the simple steps. At first, the SSID settings for a given wireless connection are managed automatically; if you move the mouse to another wireless computer the setting of that connection will change.
The WAM service uses the Microsoft networking integrated library (SIP) to configure and access the wireless networks. This library contains various types of protocols, services, and other objects required to manage and work with wireless networks. The WAM service can use three types of libraries: embedded libraries, primary libraries, and reference libraries. For every managed type of wireless access, there is at least one corresponding library.
Some of the SIP embedded libraries used by WAM are: sip sockets, icons, mssp3, rtables, pbscmp, smss, and said definitions. Most of these libraries can be accessed through Explorer, which displays the contents of the selected libraries. The wireless access manager has various options for managing the embedded libraries.
The wireless access manager can also perform automatic installations and uninstalls of the libraries. It can configure and select the services, programs, and features to be used with the selected libraries. The wireless networks can be detected and the settings can be modified as needed. The integrated library system used by WAM can manage Bluetooth, BLE, IBSS, and FLEX, and support for the latest standards such as GSM, HSDPA, and UMTS.
There are also different types of libraries that are supported by the wireless ERP systems of WAM. The most popular of these is the Portable Library Format (PLF), RealTime Transport Protocol (top), and RTCP. These three types of library technology is the most widely used and are available free on the market. In addition, a number of standard RTCP protocols including PDCarp and RTCpport are supported by some of the wireless devices.
An application called Bluesocket is an integration platform that enables wireless application developers to create programs and tests their services in the WAMP. A bluesocket client can also connect to an iris or usb device. To use bluesocket, the program must have already installed the necessary drivers and the bluesocket server. Then all that is required from the developer is to connect the two devices and start the application.
The wireless networks are being managed and monitored using WAM.
The WAM software can detect all wireless networks and determine whether they need any configuration. As soon as there is an entry in the preferences, the specified or desired network will be configured automatically. A detailed report about each wireless network will be generated and a list of wireless networks will be displayed.
Wireless Application Access Manager (WAMA) is also commonly referred to as WAN optimizer or WAN Spigot. It is a Java based application that monitors, modifies and maintains the security of the various WAN related parameters. The main features of WAN Spigot are deployment of the WAN Optimization Protocol (WOP), automatic discovery of SSIDs, setting up of WEP settings, usage of Shared Secrets (SSP), a secure key allocation, policy based routing, etc. With the help of WAN Spigot, one can easily manage and monitor wireless connections of the organization. One can also test whether all devices are connected to a WLAN or not by running a scan of the wireless AP’s with the WAP.
- Wireless Access Management (WAM) is a component included in the Windows XP Professional operating system,
- Which helps to detect unauthorized access and block the related functions.
- The application works only if the computers in the range of the wireless network are used.
There are two types of WAM such as Blocking and Batching. In Blocking mode, all the computers that are not part of the wireless networks are blocked and hence no programs are allowed to access them.
In Batching mode, all the computers that are part of the wireless network are selected and a list of all such selected computers will be shown in a pop up screen. Then all such computer will be allowed to connect to the WAN and the WAP will automatically be established. In other words, WAM works by performing what is known as discovery. The WAM application then looks for any unauthorized access points and tries to prevent the same by blocking them or by blocking the related functions.
